Every morning, your child is examined by one of the team’s paediatricians who prescribes the treatment or decides on the medical examinations that your child requires, and determines whether your child is ready to be discharged. He will inform you on the state of health of your child and its evolution.
They work with and under the supervision of the paediatricians. The paediatric assistant is a doctor undergoing a specialisation and who is permanently on duty in the unit. He informs you of the results of examinations, any changes made to the treatment, and prepares medical documents (certificates, prescriptions, and discharge letters).
Miss Anne Bodson is the head nurse. She is in charge of the nursing team and oversees the organisation of the unit and of administered treatments, constantly ensuring their quality and efficiency. She answers questions parents might have regarding the hospitalisation of their child.
Day and night, the nurses provide nursing care, monitor various parameters (blood pressure, temperature, etc.) and administer treatments. They inform and reassure children and their parents.
THE PAEDIATRIC NURSES
They are in charge of hygiene care, and make sure the children are comfortable and monitored. They work together with the nurses. They help the logistics assistant with certain tasks.
THE LOGISTICS ASSISTANT
She provides logistical support to the team, so that its members can concentrate on the healthcare provided to the patients and improve their comfort. She hands out and removes meal trays, oversees the general order of the unit, she cleans and disinfects the medical equipment, places stationery orders, etc.
THE NURSING STUDENTS
They work under the responsibility of the nurses and their internship supervisor.
The psychologist addresses the questions, concerns, and uncertainties of children and their parents, together with the doctors and the entire team.
THE SOCIAL ASSISTANT
The social assistant provides assistance to people facing various social issues.
With a medical prescription, he comes to treat your child twice per day.
The dietician makes sure that the various diets are being properly followed and can provide advice if your child is experiencing eating issues.
Clowns, story tellers and other volunteers complement our work by providing moments of fun to the children and their parents.
They ensure that the unit and rooms are always clean.
